Sorry to hear that. I have an A80 also, and I really like that camera (swear it takes better pictures than even my A620).

The E18 error is fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty they're worth a try:

I have purchased 2 Pure Radios (Mio &Evoke Flow) and have had the eact same problem you mention. It is definately a bug with the radio.

I have had the Mio replaced twice and the Evoke Flow once. 6 months later I had the same problem and took it back and got a credit. I would not trust this brand any longer...

Our Automated Attendant for our Norstar M7310 is picking up the wrong message. Where do we change that?


assigning messages is done by
feature 983>1020000>AA>Table>table 1>Greeting Type
depending on how you have the business hours times set it'll play the greeting you want. Typically I set the greeting type as morning:1, afternoon:1, Evening:1 and Non-business:4. then under business hours I set them up as mon- fri morn:0800am, aft:0800am, eve:0800am and nonb: 0500pm. sat and sun as morn:1200am, aft: 1200am, eve:1200am, and nonb: 1159am
press Rls when finished
that way when a caller calls between 8am and 4:59pm they get the day greeting and from 5pm to 7:59am they get the night greeting (greeting 4) saturday and sunday play the night greeting all day.
Dont forget to record greeting 4 as your night greeting.

Chain saw emitted sparks and now does not start.


Hi

When the engine get warm and die(I suppose)check the spark at the sparkplug.You can let the saw run until it ran out of gas and you will not distroy the engine.Change the sparkplug.

Black screen, loud beeping when opened, doesn't work


The following blog outlines some simple repair options for a lens error. But please first try the listed Fix #2. I heard that fix particularly works well for a camera who's battery had run down with the lens open. Please post back here with a follow up comment if any of the fixes work:
